Miracle Drug
Our dog, Edgar, has kidney cancer and failure and he got to where he wasn't eating due to nausea. We tried Reglan and it worked for a while and then stopped. Our vet recommended Cerenia and it has been our short term miracle drug. It has stopped the nausea associated with his disease and is now allowing him to enjoy food again for what ever time he has left with us.

Works for cat allergies
My cat has asthma and also had a severe problem with nasal congestion and sneezing with considerable discharge. Nothing worked to relieve this problem until my vet did some research and found that Cerenia had been found to successfully treat allergies in cats. We gave it a try and no more sneezes or congestion! The dose is tiny (1/4 tab twice a week) but the results are amazing.

Happy dog. Happy parents!
Our little 13 pound Alaskan Klee Kai mix was so miserable in the car that it brought tears to my eyes. She couldn't make it even a mile or two in the car without getting sick. Like others, we tried everything. We talked to our Vet and she prescribed cerenia. We had our doubts and initially gave her half of a 60mg tab (ok'd by Vet and we thought that might do it). Well, she didn't get as sick but it wasn't enough. Next time we gave her the whole tablet and it was a miracle! We travelled nearly 200 miles and she was a happy, happy dog! She had the best time ever when we reached our destination! We thought it might be just a quirk, but lo and behold, same fabulous results the next time. Since the effects last about 3 days, one tablet worked perfectly for the whole trip nearly 400 miles round trip with overnight stays). I nearly cried to know that this little girl had such relief. We followed directions exactly: no food one hour before cerenia; gave the 60mg tab 2 hours before travel. We let her have water but no food. THANK YOU cerenia for giving our little girl travel freedom! Incidentally, she generally seemed less anxious overall! I'm so happy that this little girl is comfortable on car trips. She now has another joyful option in her life.

We are using Cerenia to help with acute Rhinitis. My dog was having multiple bloody nose episodes and we tried several other treatment plans. My vet recently attended a seminar and learned that there has been some very good success using Cerenia to treat acute rhinitis and we have seen a tremendous improvement. Its been 12 days without a bloody nose. He is breathing great and has so much more energy. He is back to his old self. He will be on five days on and two days off for the rest of his life.

QUESTION
Our dogs weigh 18 and 22 lbs. what mg of cerenia should I order
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. The usual dosage for a dog 18 and 22lbs would be to give (1) 24mg tablet for dogs 17.7-26.4lbs (for prevention of acute vomiting). And for prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness 16.6-22lbs , give 1/2 tablet (160mg). Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate dosage for your furry friend.

QUESTION
Are there ever cases where the doctor prescribes cerenia once a day for the rest of a dogs life?
ANSWERS (2)
Yes. I’m on a Facebook group for Megaesophagus which means dogs regurgitate a lot, with the possible life-threatening problem of Aspiration Pneumonia, which a lot of dogs die from everyday.

Cerenia® (maropitant) is approved for the treatment and prevention of acute vomiting (due to motion sickness, some chemotherapy and other medications with vomiting side effects). It is difficult to provide a definitive answer without knowing the reason your dog is prescribed Cerenia®. Typically, animals are not prescribed Cerenia® for the duration of their life. Typical duration of therapy is 2-5 consecutive days depending on dosage form (injection, oral tablets) and indication. However, dogs 7 months and older may be prescribed Cerenia® oral tablets, once daily until vomiting ceases.

What is Cerenia?

Cerenia is indicated for the prevention of acute vomiting and prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. It is intended for use in dogs 8 weeks of age or older. Cerenia requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs only (8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:

  • Prevents acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs
  • Comes in 4 different size tablets for various weight classes
  • Once a day dosing
  • Non-sedating

How does Cerenia work?

Cerenia is considered an antiemetic. It helps control acute vomiting and vomiting due to motion sickness in dogs. Vomiting occurs when a certain substance called substance P in the brain is triggered. Maropitant citrate, the ingredient in Cerenia, blocks substance P thus controlling the vomiting reaction.

Cautions:

Not for use in humans. Keep out of reach in children. Topical exposure may elicit localized allergic skin reactions in some individuals. In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice. Repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to skin sensitization. Wash hands with soap and water after administering drug. Cerenia is also an ocular irritant. In case of accidental eye exposure, flush with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.

Brand Name:

Cerenia (Pfizer)

Generic Name:

maropitant citrate

What is the most important information I should know about Cerenia?

Dogs should not be fed for at least 1 hour prior to giving Cerenia. For the prevention of acute vomiting Cerenia can be given once a day for up to 5 days. For prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness Cerenia can be given once a day, 2 hours before traveling, for up to 2 days in a row. Do not embed Cerenia in hot dogs, sausage, hard cheese or pill pockets to give the tablet as this may decrease efficacy by delaying absorption. If necessary, loosely wrap the tablet in a small amount of food such as deli meat.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Cerenia?

Do not use this medication in animals allergic to it. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver disease, gastrointestinal obstruction, or if your pet is pregnant or nursing.

How should Cerenia be given?

Give Cerenia exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. For prevention of motion sickness, Cerenia should be given 2 hours before traveling, but you should not feed your pet for at least 1 hour before giving Cerenia. Blood tests or other medical evaluations may be required by your veterinarian to monitor your pet. Store Cerenia at controlled room temperature (68-77 F). Keep this medication out of the reach of children and other pets.

What are the possible side effects of Cerenia?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Cerenia and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; hives); sudden onset of diarrhea; vomiting; shock; seizures; coma. Other less serious side effects may occur. If any of the following side effects occur, continue to give Cerenia and talk to your veterinarian: drooling, lethargy, drowsiness. Side effects other than those listed in this guide may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Cerenia?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and give the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication unless directed to by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Cerenia?

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room. Symptoms of Cerenia overdose may include diarrhea, bloody stool, loss of appetite, lethargy.

What should I avoid while giving Cerenia to my pet?

Topical exposure to Cerenia may cause localized allergic skin reactions in some individuals. Repeated or prolonged exposure may lead to skin sensitization. Wash hands with soap and water after giving the medication. In case of accidental eye exposure, flush the eye with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.

What other drugs will affect Cerenia?

Consult your veterinarian before giving Cerenia to pets also being given NSAIDs, heart, anticonvulsant, and behavioral medications since interactions may occur. Drugs other than those listed in this guide may also interact with Cerenia. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over the counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

QUESTION
Our dogs weigh 18 and 22 lbs. what mg of cerenia should I order
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. The usual dosage for a dog 18 and 22lbs would be to give (1) 24mg tablet for dogs 17.7-26.4lbs (for prevention of acute vomiting). And for prevention of vomiting due to motion sickness 16.6-22lbs , give 1/2 tablet (160mg). Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate dosage for your furry friend.

QUESTION
Why would Cerenia be prescribed for a dog whose problem is a partially collapsed trachea?
ANSWERS (2)
Cerenia is an Anti-Vomit drug. Seems to me vomiting with a collapsed Trachea would not be a good idea.

QUESTION
Are there ever cases where the doctor prescribes cerenia once a day for the rest of a dogs life?
ANSWERS (2)
Yes. I’m on a Facebook group for Megaesophagus which means dogs regurgitate a lot, with the possible life-threatening problem of Aspiration Pneumonia, which a lot of dogs die from everyday.

Cerenia® (maropitant) is approved for the treatment and prevention of acute vomiting (due to motion sickness, some chemotherapy and other medications with vomiting side effects). It is difficult to provide a definitive answer without knowing the reason your dog is prescribed Cerenia®. Typically, animals are not prescribed Cerenia® for the duration of their life. Typical duration of therapy is 2-5 consecutive days depending on dosage form (injection, oral tablets) and indication. However, dogs 7 months and older may be prescribed Cerenia® oral tablets, once daily until vomiting ceases.
